Dear Friends: 

On behalf of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, it is my honor to extend warm 
greetings as you gather to celebrate the Tenth Anniversary of the Reggie Lewis Track and 
Athletic Center. 

Since opening its doors in 1995, the Reggie Lewis Center has witnessed seventeen World 
and American records. It has been the state's top venue for public high school track 
competitions, and has provided a fitness facility for all ages and a place for community 
organizations to meet. 

I commend the Center for fulfilling the goals of its namesake. As Reggie Lewis was, in 
life, a staunch advocate for the youth of the Boston community, the Reggie Lewis Track 
and Athletic Center has worked tirelessly to carry on his mission. 

Please accept my best wishes for an enjoyable celebration. 

Sincerely, 



/**&.

John Thomas 

A Ugtnd in the World off Athletics 

By: Zara Northover 

The Ingredients to success are id be talented, dedicated, hardworking and devoted These adjectives 
are also used to describe John Thomas. Thomas was a talented athlete, dedicated coach, hardworking 
businessman and a devoted athletic director. 

Making an Impact was never an issue for Thomas, the record-breaking high jumper who managed to 
make history at the age of 1 7. Bom on March 3, 1941 In Boston MA, Thomas went on to amass 
undefeated records in the high jum p became the first man in the world to dear 7 feet. As a high 
school New England champion in both the hurdles and high jump he turned down hundreds of full 
scholarship offers In order to attend Boston University. During his tenure at BU, Thomas was 
undefeated. He was selected 4 years to the all American track team, dalmed 5 New England Outdoor 
Championship titles, 6 indoor and outdoor IC4A championship titles, as well as6 NCAA championship 
titles . As a freshman, in college Thomas jumped 7 feet 1 _ inches to claim the world indoor record. 
As a sophomore, he broke the world record 8 times with g best jump of 7 feet 3 _ inches and made the 
US Olympic team where he brought home a bronze medal. A few years later he became known as the 
man who cleared 7 feet or higher a colossal 1 91 times, losing only 8 competitions and placing In two 
Olympic Games bronze In i960, sliver In 1964 also winning 9 national titles. 

In order to sum up Thomas^ athletic experience, he might just say Thomasism* which meant believing 
In himself, setting goals and going after them. Thomas, who was satisfied athletically, realized that he 
had more to oiler beyond competition, immediately after graduation in 1 963 Thomas accepted a 
coaching position at his alma mata Boston University taking charge of both the men's and women's 
track and field programs. Thomas dalmed that even though formally he finished 1 S years of coaching 
at BU he continued to help those who wanted to be helped. "Coaching is something that is done 
throughout life whether It Is giving of advice or aiding with technique," he noted; advising to many 
that 'competition is 70 percent mental. Therefore, one should prepare at practice and then go to the 
meet and have fun." 

Thomas's feats did not stop at a coaching level. From 1964-1 985 he was Inducted Into 6 halls of fame, 
most notably the Boston University Hall of Rime, Helms Foundation Hail of Fame, LIS Track and Field 
Hall of Fame and the National Track and Field Hall of Fame. He has been a role model to many children, 
teens, and collegians, often giving speeches and seminars In order to reach out and give back. Venturing 
off into the business world, he ended right back within athletics by accepting the Athletics Director 
position at Roxbury Community College in 1 994 In order to turn the program aroundlThomas used 
his athletic background, business mindset and compassion for student athletes to ensure that the 
Roxbury Community College athletics program became nationally recognized. Thomas states, "There 
was no greater feeling the n taking home the 2000 National championship title when the Men's 
Basketball team captured victory at the National Junior College Athletic Association Basketball 
Tournament" Having never missed an athletic activity, award ceremony or graduation,Triomas has 
been there for his students and coaches. He will be missed as he retires to relax and finally take a break. 
However, don't be surprised If he is In the stands proudly watching a flourishing athletic program that 
he started* with student athletes who continue to make him proud.
